Spartan Race Entry Giveaway – Find Your Strength

Overcoming obstacles in a Spartan adventure race is a lot like conquering challenges in life. It forces you to face your weaknesses while finding your strength.

But the experience is wrapped in exhilaration, adrenaline, camaraderie and mud. A lot of mud.

Thanks to Spartan, I’m giving away one free entry for any open heat (non-confirmed start time) in any 2014 Spartan Race in the continental US.

To run the contest, which ends 12:00 AM PST, April 19, I’m using the Rafflecopter widget. At that point I’ll also post a link to 15% off your race entry, so everyone can be a winner.

You can enter by:

  • Posting a comment (required) saying why you are or want to be Spartan Strong. It’s up to you how you define that.  (2 points)
  • Tweeting about the contest. (1 point)

For me, Spartan Strong isn’t about how fast I am, how much I can lift or pull or push or how high I can climb. It isn’t about how many burpees I can do.

Becoming Spartan Strong, I believe, is about facing challenges and working hard to overcome them. It’s about breaking boundaries. It’s also about accepting help when you need it. (Good shoes can help, as well.)

When I ran my first Spartan Sprint last year (more about that here) I received help from my husband and friends as well as complete strangers who were willing to lend a hand, a back or foot to help me scale a wall or army crawl my way up a slick hill under barbed wire without any footholds.

Without them I might still be stuck on that hillside. They might be stuck as well, because it took teamwork to reach the top.

That’s life too.

Sometimes while facing challenges you discover some of your strength comes from the people around you.

That’s why I wanted to do this race entry giveaway. To all the people who want to break their boundaries and overcome their obstacles but think a Spartan adventure race might be a little too hard. Go for it. Discover how Spartan Strong you really are.

In that spirit, please share this contest with your friends.
